How to Link Twitch to Discord

calendar1 Last Updated

Becoming a part of a streamer’s community is not only fun and exciting for you, it helps them to continually build on their momentum. Additionally, if you have subscribed to a channel on Twitch, you will often find that the same streamer has special Discord channels set up for you and other subs. In order for you to access them, however, you need to link your Twitch account to your Discord account. 

This post will show you how you can link your accounts so that you can take advantage of your sub perks. It will also teach you how to unlink your account should you want to change things in the future. 

How to Connect Your Twitch and Discord Accounts

To link your Discord and Twitch accounts, you will need to complete the following:

Step 1: Sign in to your Discord account, then click on the settings icon in the lower left-hand corner. It will be next to your name. 

Step 2: From the menu that appears, choose the “Connections” option under “User Settings.”

Step 3: You will see a list of available connections. Click on the Twitch icon. 

Step 4: A window will open to link to your Twitch account. It will only work if you are logged in to the Twitch account that you wish to link. If everything looks correct, click the “Authorize” button to complete the process. 

How to Unlink a Twitch and Discord Account

To unlink a Discord account from a Twitch account, you will need to complete the following:

Step 1: Sign in to your Discord account, then click on the settings icon in the lower left-hand corner. It will be next to your name. 

Step 2: From the menu that appears, choose the “Connections” option under “User Settings.”

Step 3: Locate your linked Twitch account, then click the X on the same bar. From there, you will be able to Disconnect the accounts. 

How to Deauthorize Discord on Twitch

If you want to ensure that your Twitch and Discord accounts are completely disconnected, you will need to deauthorize Discord on your Twitch account. You can do that by completing the following:

Step 1: Log in to your Twitch account, then click on your avatar in the upper right-hand corner. 

Step 2: Click the “Connections” tab at the top of the page.

Step 3: Scroll down through your connections until you find Discord and disconnect it there. 

Reasons to Link Your Twitch to Your Discord

The main reason to link your Twitch and Discord accounts is to take advantage of sub-only channels in communities where you are subscribed on Twitch. Streamers will also generally allow subs to use their channel emotes within the Discord, giving you an extra perk. 

While perks vary from community to community based on what the streamer wants, you may often be able to help plan special events, play with the streamer, or just get to know other subs who love the same content you do. 

How Long Does it Take to Get a Sub Role on Discord?

Discord refreshes a server hourly, so it may take up to an hour for you to get sub role perks. Smaller communities may be willing to sync things faster if you are waiting in a queue to play with the streamer or engage with the content in another sub-only way.
